Title: A Heart Response (Part 1)
Speaker: Pastor George Gracie
Scripture: Matthew 5:4-5; Numbers 12
Jesus continues the Sermon on the Mount by declaring “blessed” are those who mourn and those who are meek.
Everyone experiences sad and tragic losses at some time or another, often of those we love. Yet, Jesus describes another type of mourning that is deeper: the mourning over our personal sin before a holy God.
This mourning, should in turn spur us onto meekness. This is not to be confused as weakness, as the world often presents it. Rather, meekness is a freeing and empowering humility before God and others.
